Average time to visit

Aix-en-Provence enjoys a pleasant, Mediterranean climate. On average, Aix gets 300 days of sunshine each year, with warm but mild temperatures. Summer is high season here, with August bringing the hottest weather and the biggest crowds. Expect Aix to be overrun with tourists and student backpackers this month in particular. Spring is a great time of year, the weather is warm, with temperatures swaying between 16 and 20°C, and the crowds are small. If you want to see lavender fields then it would be best to visit the region in June. In October the weather starts to cool. Fall is also the start of the wettest weeks of the year. October sees an average of 3.7 inches of rain, with an average of three inches following in November. Still, it never gets all that chilly in Aix, and snow is rare. In January, the mercury rarely dips beneath the -1°C.

For the gardens alone, stay at Le Pigonnet. You can explore Aix-en- Provence knowing you have these lush gardens and heated pool to return to! Be sure to sample their famous pistachio souffl which needs to be ordered in advance!

    Gordes is arguably the prettiest village in the Luberon region and seems to cling on to the rock face overlooking the Vaucluse plateau. The village is a mass of winding lanes, terracotta rooftops and church towers.
